It started on the metro, was delayed with a long wait at the bus stop but eventually we made it to George Washington's old plantation.
The story of George Washington is enlightening. His father died at 11. While most kids would have been sent back to England at that point, his family did not have the money. Nor did they have money for his education. Much of what he knew was from books. A good lesson about the importance of ambition, self-sufficiency and determination.
